Forum: GratefulDead Subject: A Trove Of Treasure Revisited

Okay, perhaps it's all rather subjective, and yes, there have been previous threads (including my own) related to the somewhat newish Taper's Section at dead.net:

http://www.dead.net/view/tapers

But over the past couple/few months i have been truly enjoying what is found therein. And oddly enough, perhaps shockingly so, i have read elsewhere people dismissing this great resource. Whatever, to each his or her own as they say. For instance, check out this genius' attitude to the Taper Section and the shutting down of the sbds at LMA -- mister cool&hipdood:

http://forum.gratefuldeadmusic.com/eve/forums/a/tpc/f/3771051527/m/5421091448/p/1

All i can say is, what a friggin' leech, an ungrateful ass, and less of his type in the world the better i say. I for one am entirely grateful & appreciative for what i have been able to listen to and share. I mean, think about it. Over at dead.net, David Lemieux, guardian of the vault, sifts through the reels and plucks tracks and sequences that he thinks fans and heads everywhere will derive enjoyment and pleasure from. So, what's wrong with that picture? Nothing, that's what. Oh yeah, i forgot, what other noteworthy band offers the same? You want to hear something from the vault that hasn't circulated to date, such as the incredible Let It Grow from 5/14/78 that only circulates in audience source, and is now available for download as of this week in very decent .mp3 (192kbps) from the Taper's Section? Just e-mail David and perhaps he'll throw it up during the show's anniversary week. People should just stop their moaning and complaining about the current GD policies, and enjoy the tremendous amounts of excellent quality live music provided by the one and only Grateful Dead. Would i love to see those tasty soundboards from May 1978 released? Of course, who wouldn't, but i'm not exactly going to go bang down the door of the vault or give the proverbial finger to the remaining members of the band.

Anyway, my reason for posting this thread was not to rant, but more of an FYI about some of the stuff at Taper's Section that is _not_ in circulation, either at all, or as soundboard, and i have culled through the many offerings (ignoring any studio or rehearsal or early sixties stuff) and list them here. The links do not actually go to the song or show segment itself, but to the page where you can find the song/segment links. Enjoy if you're of a mind to. Peace and War always.

I must vehemently disagree with your holier than thou assessment, sir. As someone who shelled out good money to see the boys (hey--average ticket cost was around $7.50), I got rights. They owe it to me personally to open up the fucking vault and personally send me some personally autographed digital copies for me to personally enjoy.

And, as to this bullshit marketing: so what if tours tend to break even after equipment and other expenses? How dare they sell their logo for good money in order to try to keep their cronies on the payroll. It's bad enough that they place it on their rip off cds--which should be sent to me free of charge, postage paid of course because, as I said, I paid good money to see them.

And it is not fair that Phil blew out his pipes in the seventies by singing so much and so loud and that his voice at sixty whatever is raspy and off key. Let him stick to his over mechanized bass and let others handle the singing chores. God, it's just a museum tour anyway. And, with his voice so bad, they should let me in for free anyway.

Remember. I paid good money. dammit! I got rights.

Wah wah wah . . . . .

Also - thanks for the dropoff - got handed to me this morning at pt - very very cool my friend!

Methinks there were some April 78's i was going to burn for you - but they were on a notepad that one of my daughters absonded with along with a list of a couple of shows for Wharf and Dancin'

if you remember, let me know as I have started burning again (atleast short term)

very cool! glad the transporter still works, very nice, and hope you enjoy that 10/26/80 show that we listened to with WharfRat, just an all-around wonderful show; yeah, i've really been getting into quite a lot of the stuff that David Lemieux has been putting up at dead.net as mp3, and the links above are really just stuff that i noticed wasn't in circulation as sbd or at all, but as mickmack pointed out, hours and hours of musical enjoyment; can't remember if you were going to burn me something, seriously, i can't recall, but then i forget so quickly once the next show comes along, know what i mean? be well my friend!

Also on taper's section, as far as I know previously uncirculated, from 1966 - there's a tasty version of "Mindbender" - a Great Society-style lead break kicks in at around 70 seconds in.

Mindbender link

here's news from David at the vault on upcoming stuff:

Grateful Dead Vault wrote:
Good news: I have a good chunk of 6/6/70 coming up from the Fillmore West in a few weeks. Two chunks, actually. Be sure to check in then. The August shows aren't in there, and nor is the video of 10/4/70.


David


David,

Thanks for writing back!

I was at the Friday April 10th 1970 FW show, with Miles Davis. My first live r&r show.

Also the June 4th and June 6th FW show and the 8-17-1970 FW show.
I'd know these if I heard them, from the banter unique to those nights - hope you can turn those up.

I also went to the 10-4-1970 Winterland show, well-represented on audio tape - don't suppose the video tape (it was on KQED that night) was saved?



Grateful Dead Vault wrote:

There are indeed many, many 1970 shows missing from the vault. Which ones were you at? I'll dig in and see if they're there.


Thanks for writing.


David


David,



Listening now to the 5-14-1970 New Speedway>St.Stephen. Thanks.



Always enjoy hearing rare stuff from 1970, as well as my favorite era - '66 - '68 ('69 ok!).



Attended my 1st live shows in 1970, saw 5 GD shows that year at least. Some of the shows from that year at the the Fillmore West (Carousel) don't circulate. I hope someday more will be found from those shows, I recall some peak performances haven't heard since.





thanks

cream-puff ... very much appreciate the post, as it verifies for me (and others) the communicativeness of David Lemieux at deadnet, how the relationship is not antagonistic and never was ... cheers, Arbuthnot

This one from the links provided this week is truly extra-special- it is so good it makes a betty board sound like a hissy aud in comparison- and the plaing and musicianship therein are breathtaking- truly truly special- yes Arb- these have been mostly great links- but this past week has some of the better ones- can I tell you I cannot wait until Mid-June?

definitely agreed, this week's offerings, and last week's as well, had some definite nuggets, particulary the Let It Grow from May '78 ... have you listened to that one yet!

Don't get me wrong, I dig the band . . . I just don't have anything better to do with my time than to get on Grateful Dead sites and whine like a 2-year-old with diaper rash.

Thanks very much for the info, though, Arbuthnot.

I like the Taper Section...there is well over 50 hours of music to be listened to there. My hat's off to Dave.
